Welcome to Just Answer. We are an online advice service. You are through to Dr Coles. I am a UK based vet. I am sorry to hear you are having problems with your dog.

I will get back to you as soon as I can, there can be a delay (especially with time difference) however I will respond to you. Can you tell me a little more about what is going on?
It is likely that there is an underlying problem which is meaning she can't keep weight on, rather than related to what she is actually eating.
Drinking more can be a sign of several things, including kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, cushings syndrome. Diabetes would be my main concern if she is drinking excessively and losing weight quickly. It often makes them more hungry as they can't properly absorb the food they are eating.
Unfortunately this is not something which can be diagnosed without a consultation, so i would recommend having an examination with a vet ASAP. They likely will take blood samples to check her blood glucose and rule out other conditions too.
Yes, as advised above it is unlikely related to what she is eating, rather an underlying illness.
ok great. I would do this ASAP as for the best success with treatment they need to be diagnosed quickly.
No problem, fingers crossed she is OK!
